Great Gray Owl in flight
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|From my last trip to Ottawa.|
The Great Gray Owl (Strix nebulosa) is in fact the largest member of the Strigidae family in North America. This « gray ghost » is characteristically tame. It flies low to the ground and its flight is virtually noiseless.
The Great Gray Owl ranges in the northern coniferous belt across North America and Eurasia. It occurs in most parts of Canada. It is the emblem bird of Manitoba. Evidence of nesting activity was first recorded in 1988 in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region of northwestern Québec.

That's a glorious shot Peter. Love the shadow below. A nice low contrast shot with great colours. TFS Trevor
Nice capture, but might be more powerful with tighter crop.
by far the best pic of Great Gray Owl published these days

One again! Full frontal POV that makes an impressive shot. It's almost a drawing and it's beautiful.
